OFFICIAL NOTICE ABOUT DRIVES. 
I. 

There seems to be some misunderstanding with 
regard to the statement that the united drive for 
the Wellesley Service Fund will be the last drive 
permitted in the college. This statement is true 
and the attention of all is called to these facts in 
accordance with the statement: — 

1. There must be no canvassing of houses or 
classes for particular good causes however appeal- 
ing. 

.'. There will be no collections taken up after 
moving addresses on causes needing help. 

3. There will be no concerted or official appeals 
for money except calls to join certain organiza- 
tions having membership fees. 

Notice, however, that sometimes in meetings or 
through the "News," causes may be presented 
which will arouse sympathy and no one is for- 
bidden to make free-will offerings if moved to do 
so! The response to such calls will be purely in- 
dividual and no pressure will be brought to bear 
in order to swell the amounts. 
II. 

Those interested in any particular good cause 
not previously provided for are asked to bring it 
to the attention of the United Service Fund Com- 
mittee who will cordially welcome all suggestions 
as to the best ways to disburse that fund. 
III. 

If there are any who withheld something on 
their pledges through fear that later calls might 
come and who, thoughtfully icansiderinig their 
whole year's income, would like to increase those 
pledges let them know that such increases would 
be joyfully received by the committee. Emergen- 
cy appeals are constantly being received and these 
we cannot meet unless a larger fund is in our 
hands than is now pledged. 

Signed, 
Alice V. Waite, 

For the Administration. 
Eliza H. Kexdrick, 
For the Committee on Service Fund. 



HOUSE HAS LONG SESSION. 

At the House of Representatives meeting on 
Thursday, November 6, the main business, that of 
voting on the central bureau to appoint com- 
mittees, could not be settled for lack of a voting 
quorum. All of the newly elected Freshmen mem- 
bers did not feel qualified to vote upon that sub- 
ject, but other business was carried on. Grace 
Osgood, 1932, was elected Clerk of the House. 
It was announced that the College Government 
Associations' Conference is to be held in Wel- 
lesley from November 20 to 22, and that Charlotte 
Hassett and Margaret Haddock would be glad to 
receive suggestions as to what college subjects 
should be discussed. 

A motion was carried that the matter of allow- 
ing the use of typewriters after seven-thirty 
should be settled by vote of individual houses. 
Boating on Sunday is to be discontinued after 
the second Sunday in November. At that time it 
will be too cold for comfortable canoeing and the 
necessity for employing a guard to patrol the lake 
seems past. 

Further reports from the committee in charge 
of presenting a new plan for election were re- 
ceived. The matter is to be explained by the 
members to their constituents before the next 
meeting. 



be considered practically valueless by the other 
eastern colleges? 

Last April an intercollegiate Athletic Associa- 
tion Conference was held at Mt. Holyoke. Twenty- 
four colleges were represented. Although Wel- 
lesley's A. A. organization is considered about the 
finest in the east, the system of awards was 
severely criticised. "Do you give numerals to 
substitutes?" said Wheaton — "we give them only 
to our champion team;" Barnard — to members of 
teams only, not to substitutes; Brown and Cornell 
to the first team in a sport etc. Not one college 
out of the twenty-four represented gave numerals 
to substitutes with the exception of Wellesley. 

Do you realize that every year an average of 
400 numerals are awarded? The average number 
of team members is ten. There are ten sports and 
four classes in each — that means 400 numerals 
excluding Indoor meet teams. 

The delegates returned full of enthusiasm over 
the new ideas they had gained, with the intention 
of putting Wellesley's awards on a basis more 
nearly equal to its fellow colleges. A committee 
consisting of the two delegates, a member of the 
Hygiene Department and a fourth member chos- 
en from the College at large worked out the new 
system which became effective this fall. This plan 
was submitted to the A. A. Board of 1919, the in- 
coming Board for 1920, and the faculty members 
of the Hygiene Department. Before it was passed 
these forty odd people, scattered throughout the 
college, brought it informally before the student 
body. There seemed to be complete satisfaction 
on the whole. After several weeks had elapsed 
the board again met to give the opinion of the 
girls with whom its members had talked. Several 
changes were made — then the plan was unanimous- 
ly passed. Is this not similar to the representa- 
tive system in college government? It is stated 
in the A. A. Rules and Regulations, Article XI, 
"These rules and regulations may be amended 
upon majority vote of the Athletic Association 
Executive Board." The Board, however, did not 
pass this big change without trying to obtain the 
opinions of the student body as well as it could. 

We ask the Student body for suggestions which 
will be an improvement, but at the same time we 
ask that you remember that the future classes 
will not have been governed by the old regime, 
and it is only fair that we sacrifice our prejudices 
in order that they may have an award system 
which is respected by the other colleges.

DEBATING CLUB ELECTIONS. 



WELLESLEY'S AWARDS. 



Do you want the awards given at Wellesley to 



DISCUSS THE HONOR SYSTEM. 

On Tuesday, November 18, the Forum will meet 
to discuss the Honor System. The executive com- 
mittee feels that a thorough discussion on this 
subject is of sufficiently great importance to 
justify a departure from the consideration of na- 
tional and world issues. 

The discussion will form around the following- 
points : 

1. How do you interpret the present honor 
system? 

2. Do the students make the rules which they 
are "honor^bound" to observe? 

3. What is the difference between "being on 
one's honor" to observe a rule and simply being 
trusted to observe it? 

4. Do you wish an honor system that dispenses 
with proctors in examinations? 

5. Do you make any distinction between re- 
porting another's misconduct under an honor sys- 
tem and "tattling?" 

Qualify yourself to speak out ! 



In spite of the vigorous campaign for Debating 
numbers to make the election legal. The Execu- 
n.imbers to make the election legal. The Execu- 
tive Board of the club therefore took over the mat- 
ter, and unanimously chose Rachel Jones for pres- 
ident, ratifying the selection of the majority who 
bad voted, Elizabeth Wight was elected to re- 
place Rachel Jones as vice-president. 



JAMES NORMAN HALL TO SPEAK AT 
WELLESLEY: 



On Friday evening, November 21, James Nor- 
man Hall will speak in Wellesley at the first lect- 
ure of the lecture course. Mr. Hall is well known 
as an aviator and as a writer. His "High Adven- 
ture," an entertaining account of his experiences 
overseas, appeared in the Atlantic Monthly. Mr. 
Hall was taken prisoner and for a while it was 
feared he had been killed. Later the news of his 
capture reached his friends in America. His lect- 
ure will undoubtedly be very entertaining. 



PROFESSOR NEWTON SPEAKS ON THE 
GROWTH OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE. 



Professor Arthur Pereivall Newton of the Uni- 
versity of London lectured in Billings Hall, Friday 
evening, November 7 on the Growth of the British 
Em/pire. Briefly, clearly, and yet at the same time 
carefully emphasizing the important details, he 
traced the political development of England from 
the time of her first alliance with Scotland until her 
entrance into the world war in August, 1914. Dur- 
ing that time she has necessarily had to cope with 
many situations in the government of her colonies; 
and that she has satisfactorily solved these prob- 
lems Mr. Newton thought was indicated by the 
fact that men no longer spoke of the Empire and 
her possessions, but of the British Empire, a co- 
ordination of nations. 

The problems which now remain may be divided 
into two classes: those of the five self-governing 
dominions, Canada, Australia, South Africa; New 
Zealand, and New Foundland; and those of the 
non-self-governing countries, India, Egypt, Ire- 
land, the Malay States, the West Indies, and others, 
who are still dependent on Great Britain for coun- 
sel and direction and in some cases, even for 
money. The chief problem in the first class, he 
said, was to insure that the voice of the self-gov- 
erning dominions should be fully heard, that they 
should have their share in deciding matters of 
common concern. He suggested that this could be 
brought about by extending the power of the crown 
through calling to the King's council ministers from 
these states. The problems of the second class, which 
would have to do principally with the granting of 
self-government he found to be by no means in- 
soluble. In speaking of India, he said that the 
majority of thinking Englishmen supported the 
educated people of India in their desire for self- 
government, that there was good-will on either side, 
but that the situation was too complex to be set- 
tled tomorrow. 

The real fact of the matter was, Mr. Newton be- 
lieved, that the world is a great deal more one 
than people think, that the underlying principles 
in England's attempt to govern her dominions was 
not to lay down a rule from above, but one on an 
equal basis, to insure to every citizen equality in 
the eyes of the law, and to give him such a govern- 
ment that he may raise himself and those around 
him to a higher, better plane.

VILLAGE SENIORS AND SOCIETIES. 



There is a habit here in college of rousing sud- 
denly for a reform, doing a great deal of talking, 
some intelligent thinking, and then completely 
dropping the matter, occasionally with the end ac- 
complished. As a rule the students are too spas- 
modic, in their zeal; they lack the reflective per- 
severence which continues long after the first glow 
of reforming ardor has died out. In this connec- 
tion comes the plea for a revival of interest in the 
problems which are always present — village seniors 
and societies. Last year the college became inter- 
ested in the plan proposed for a change in the 
village government. There was great enthusiasm 
on both sides, but it was wisely decided that so 
momentous a question should not be disposed of at 
the end of the year. Is the college again going to 
disregard this question until the time for decision 
has come? Doubtless the College Government As- 
sociation is officially mindful of the need for action, 
but that is not enough. The entire student body 
must intelligently consider the problem and formu- 
late its opinion. 

The matter of society reform is also an issue 
which should be of interest to the students and not 
just a question for the Inter-society Council. Com- 
mittees are of course doing their best to further it, 
and in the societies it is a topic of great interest, 
but what does the college at large think? Are you 
in favor of having all seniors eligible? Do you 
want mid-year initiations? Have you criticisms of 
the working out of the eligibility theory? What do 
you think of the rushing system? If you have re- 
fused eligibility or if you have accepted it, tell the 
college why. Societies are an all college question. 
It is only through all college interest that a satis- 
factory solution can be achieved. There is scarce- 
ly a thinking girl in Wellesley who not has some 
definite opinion on at least one phase of the ques- 
tion. Only through sustained, thoughtful effort 
can reforms progress effectively.

I. 

The resignation of the Debate Society President 
who was elected last spring along with the other 
major officers necessitated an out-of-season elec- 
tion. This election took place last week. No elec- 
tion was ever better advertised. Notices were 
posted on the class boards and on the bulletin 
boards of every dormitory. So anxious was the 
executive committee of Debate Society to secure a 
representive election that it stated on these 
notices that not less than 600 votes would consti- 
tute a valid election. And what happened? 238 
votes were cast — 238 out of a possible 1,100. Only 
one-fifth of the members of the three upper classes, 
in spite of every inducement to vote, took enough 
interest in the election of this exceedingly important 
officer to write a ballot and put it in the box. 
Where were the other four-fifths? A very few 
perhaps refused to vote because they didn't know 
all the candidates. Even this is no excuse for every 
girl should have made it her business to find out 
their relative merits. The whole college can never 



know personally all the candidates for any elec- 
tion. But by far the great majority of these four- 
fifths didn't come near the El table to find out 
whether they knew the nominees or not. Who can 
wonder that Wellesley continues to lose debates 
year after year when this is all the support the 
college gives our only intercollegiate activity? 
Why should we expect to win when our teams al- 
ways lack the confidence that comes only from 
knowing the whole college is behind them? 

Here we have some statistics: there are 1,100 
students in the Senior, Junior, and Sophomore 
classes, and, of these, 238 voted for Debate Presi- 
dent — not even the whole Senior class. What do 
these statistics prove? Is it merely that only one- 
fifth of the college has any interest in debating, — 
only one-fifth cares whether debate is run well or 
not? Or is it something more fundamental? One 
can't help wondering whether the results would 
have been much more satisfactory if the election 
had been for President of the Barn or of Christian 
Association. 

After all is it just indifference towards Debate 
or is it a general shirking of responsibility that 
prevails throughout the college? At the last meet- 
ing of the House of Representatives one legisla- 
tive measure failed to pass because there was not 
a quorum to vote. Eight Seniors out of 35,, 10 
Juniors out of 25, 5 Sophomores out of 20, and 
3 Freshmen out of 15 were not present. One rea- 
son for there not being a quorum was that eight 
Freshmen did not vote because of unfamiliarity 
with the question, but the proportion of absences 
especially from the two upper classes is certainly 
discouraging to those who are anxious to see the 
principle of student government succeed. 

What is the matter with us? How long are we 
going to continue to shirk our responsibilities in 
this way? When our citizens stop voting and our 
representatives stop meeting what will become of 
our college government? And worse still in what 
lethargic and inefficient manner are we going to 
fulfill our larger duties as citizens of the United 
States when the polls will be farther away than 
the El table and our personal interest in candi- 
dates will be small? E. S. B„ '21. 

II. 

The New Committee Plan; Will It Work? 

We all know that there is much that is inefficient . 
and unfair in our present system of choosing com- 
mittees. Class presidents and committee chairmen, 
no matter how much they may try to choose girls 
who are not already overworked and who are still 
competent for the job, have neither the time nor 
the facilities to search out new girls. So the same 
girls serve on committees time and time again, 
while others just as able and willing never get a 
chance. But just because we recognize an evil in 
the present system is no reason for seizing wildly 
the first possible remedy that presents itself. 

A plan is being considered in the House of Re- 
presentatives which provides for the establish- 
ment of a Committee Bureau consisting of the 
Advisory Board and three other members elected 
from each of the three upper classes. This bureau 
is for the purpose of appointing all committees 
which are in session for more than one week. 
Chairmen of committees are to confer with the 
bureau and may suggest names of girls for their 
committees. The bureau takes into consideration 
the kind of work, the name of the chairman, and 



the work preferred by the girls. If girls desig- 
nated by the chairman have not served on com- 
mittees before the bureau may appoint these. 
Otherwise, as nearly as possible girls will be ap- 
pointed to committees in alphabetical order; the 
purpose of the bureau being to distribute non- 
academic work more evenly. 

Is this elaborate mechanical device the solution 
we want? Here are a few objections to it. In the 
first place it means an enormous amount of red 
tape. Committee chairmen will have to go to the 
bureau which will have to have a meeting on every 
committee appointed in college. Either meetings 
of the bureau would have to be daily or chairmen 
would have to wait for their committee although 
their need be urgent. The girls once appointed 
must be notified, and in case any of them cannot 
serve the matter has to be referred to the bureau 
again, necessitating another meeting. Valuable 
time may be lost. Even then it would be prac- 
tically impossible to get the right girls fitted to 
the right jobs. For instance, a girl signs up to do 
dramatic work. Her name being Alice Abbott she / 
is assigned to a small committee in the first Plis- 
coda. She proves to be an excellent worker with 
much initiative and originality. By the time the 
big committee for Barn play has come around the 
bureau has gone through Bertha Barcalo, Carol 
Collins, to Rita Ransom; the next person on the 
list is Susan Sweeney. She gets a position on an 
important committee and proves to be an E grade 
worker. The admirable Alice, who has been used 
once will not have another chance until Zilpah 
Zigiatsky has been given her chance. This means 
that the genuine talent of Alice Abbott has been 
wasted on relatively unimportant work, because, 
though the bureau may or may not have known 
that Alice had real ability it was neither able to 
save her for a bigger job or give her another job 
after she had proved her worth. To limit the 
bureau in any such mechanical way is sure to bring 
poor results. 

Such clumsy over organization leaves human na- 
ture out of consideration. There is a grave dan- 
ger of losing the good that comes from having 
congenial people spontaneously come together in 
work in which they have a common interest. 

If we are going to establish such a bureau at 
least let us do it in a thorough going way, and not 
make it a side issue of the Advisory Board. Such 
a bureau, in order to function properly wouui 
have a vast amount of work to do. It should be 
pointed heavily and should be able to confine its 
efforts to this line of work. 

Last of all we are granting to thirteen girls the 
exceedingly heavy responsibility of appointing 
every committee in college. In all cases they use 
either the unreasoning alphabetical device or use 
their own judgment. As it is obviously impossible 
for these girls to make themselves cognizant of the 
desired qualities for every committee in all 
branches of college activity, we are running the risk 
of having most of our committees appointed unin- 
telligently. 

The deeper we push our investigation the less 
adequate, less efficient, less adapted to Wellesley's 
needs does this plan prove to be. 

Find out from your representative how she is 
voting on this plan. Two '21 Representatives. 



FIRST-HAND INFORMATION ON

TEACHERS' SALARIES IN THE LARGE 
CITIES. 

(From the Boston Traveler, Nov. 8) 

Analyzes Salary Schedules. 

At the request of the superintendent of schools 
and the school committee the department of ed- 
ucational investigation and measurement has un- 
dertaken the study of salary schedules in other 
cities in relation to the salary schedules of the 
various ranks in the city of Boston. The school 
committee has agreed that the information secured 
from other cities in the carrying on of this study 
shall be available to representatives of the teach- 
ers of the city. 

The interest among teachers and the public in 
this matter would seem to indicate that it is ap- 
propriate to print in the Boston Teachers News 
Letter the minimum annual increase, and the max- 
imum salaries of teachers in other cities in so far 
as the information is at this time available. •. 

Teachers should understand that a great deal 
of this information has not yet been verified by 
the securing of additional information, and is, 
therefore, subject to modification as the depart- 
ment secures additional information from the cit- 
ies included in the study. 

The desire of the school committee to place at 
the disposal of teachers of the city all information 
in its possession prompts the giving out of this 
information even though it must be considered 
subject to later verification.

THE RED CROSS COURSE IN DIETETICS. 



During the past three years the Red Cross has 
conducted classes in Home Dietetics under the 
auspices of its chapters, auxiliaries and branches. 
This course is now being rewritten, with the co- 
operation of the Department of Agriculture, and 
will be offered as far as possible to every woman 
and girl in the country, in an effort to educate 
them in the proper selection and combination of 
foods and to teach them the value of a balanced 
ration in the preservation of health and happiness. 

The development of nutritional science during 
the past decade, by experiments repeated, long 
continued, and varied, upon higher animals and 
even upon considerable groups of human beings, 
has passed almost unnoticed by the rank and file 
of housewives who, one may well supose, are the 
ones most vitally interested. The special needs of 
children for certain growth-producing substances, 
the relation between tuberculosis and under- 
nourishment, the vulnerability of the whole human 
system to disease when not fully and properly 
nourished, the vitamine-bearing qualities of cream, 
butter, certain animal fats and leafy vegetables, 
the imortant role of the mineral salts of fruits, 
all of these things and many more are of prime 
interest to the mothers and housewives of America. 

To disseminate this knowledge, no better way 
could be found than through the interpenetrative 
Red Cross, with its closely knit organization which 
touches every hamlet and crossroads in the 
country. 

The instruction will be given to Red Cross 
dietetians, or by qualified laywomen under their 
supervision. In a general way, the lessons will 
include lectures; topics for discussion by the class, 
with suggested laboratory work where possible; 
home work, exhibits, fdpmo|nst|riations', contests, 
etc.; extensive references, bibliography and illus- 
trative material. Particular emphasis will be laid 
on everyday problems in the home, and the course 
will be flexible enough to apply to every type of 
family. Lesons on infant feeding, laxity, obesity, 
fattening and gastric diets, beverages and food 
accessories, will supplement the general course. 

This proposed course is only part of the peace- 
time campaign for better health and the stamping 
out of preventable disease which the Red Cross 
is about to launch, now that its war work is draw- 
ing to a close. Courses in First Aid and Home 
Nursing and Hygiene are offered, Home service 
work is to be continued and broadened, the ap- 
pointment of community nurses promoted and the 
facilities for disaster relief extended. The Red 
Cross desires to co-operate with all existing health- 
promoting and disease-preventing organizations 
:for a healthier and happier America of Today and 
Tomorrow.

CITIZENS PLATTSBURG CLOSES 
SUCCESSFUL SIX DAY SCHOOL. 

The success of the Citizen's Plattsburg held last 
week in Boston ran ahead even of anticipation. 
The large number of women in attendance, the 
number of towns, even states, represented by dele- 
gations indicates the widespread interest in educa- 
tion for citizenship. Women were present from 
California, Missouri, Georgia, West Virginia, New 
York, Connecticut and from over 35 towns in 
Massachusetts. 

Programs of practical nature that discussed the 
actual practice of government, technique of voting 
and, political parties were more acceptable to the 
pupils than the discussion of theoretic or inspira- 
tional subjects. 

These schools are the initial step in preparation 
which will eventually lead to organization and to 
direct participation in shaping state and national 
legislation on the part of women. Already the Mass- 
achusetts Woman Suffrage Association has taken 
steps to become theMass. League of Women Voters. 
This will not preclude joining political parties, but 
will tend to prevent slavish party devotion and to 
maintain a large independent group that will vote 
for measures rather than men, and programs. 

Mrs. Maud Wood Park giving the last address 
of the Plattsburg and forecasting the political 
future of women said: 

"Then regardless of ail party affiliations which 
women may assume, the League of Women Voters, 
as an all-including non-partisan group, can afford 
that means of working unitedly regarding those in- 
terests which all women have in common. This will 
also operate to help women to definitely find them- 
selves in the parties." 



EL CIRCULO CASTELLANO. 

El Circulo Castellaiio held its first meeting of the 
year on Tuesday, the 4th of November at Z. A. 
The main purpose of the meeting was initiation of 
the new members. After a very grave and formal 
oath of the "Caballeros" had been administered, 
Spanish games were played. Refreshments of 
chocolate ice cream and cake were served later. 



THE SUFFRAGE QUESTION. 

In his second lecture on practical government, 
on Monday evening, November 10 at Billings Hall, 
Mr. Hanford of the History Department dis- 
cussed the question of the electorate of the United 
States. "Ballots," he said, "are to take the place 
of bullets in a present day free government. Yet 
today as always we are disturbed by opposing 
opinions as to the most intelligent, most democratic 
qualifications for voting." Suffrage is variously 
considered as the right of every one not mentally 
defective who has reached the age of 21 ; as a 
privilege granted to those whom the state deems 
fit; and as a public trust to be used for the wel- 
fare of the country. In respect to any one of these 
theories the present qualifications are not entirely

satisfactory. According to modern law a voter 
must be 21 years old, a citizen of the United 
States, and a resident in the community in which 
he is registered for a period of time varying from 
three months to two years. In some states there is 
provision made for an education test. No tax other 
than a poll tax, and no property qualifications are 
required. 

"There are two ways proposed for improving the 
electorate: the giving of suffrage to women and the 
extension of the educational qualification. It is 
generally conceded that women should, and are 
going to have, the power of voting. A raising of 
the educational requirement is a means of getting 
a more intelligent vote. The tendency in present 
government, however, is to extend, rather than to 
limit, suffrage."

"HELP THEM TO THE FRONT." 



"The women of Japan are potentially great — 
but they have not yet learned to come up to the 
front," Deaconess Knapp said, on Wednesday even- 
ing, November 5, in Billings Hall. (And Deaconess 
Knapp, through her work in connection with Miss 
Tsuda's school in Japan, knows). We do not find 
out what lies under the Japanese women's mys- 
terious surface because of conventions, customs, 
and because they are naturally shy. They must 
learn to "come up to the front." 

In the great land of Japan, men and women 
never work shoulder to shoulder. The women lack 
companions and even when they are married they 
cannot find real companionship. The husband, of 
higher education, is above his wife's level; he goes 
out nightly to enjoy unlaudable pleasures with 
people trained for that purpose. If Japan is going 
to rank among the foremost nations, the coming 
generations must have different ideals of home than 



these. This will come only through the higher 
education of women. 

A Japanese student of Bryn Mawr, seeing this 
crying need for schools, started one, known as 
Miss Tsuda's school. This institution has been, 
and is, most prosperous and successful. That is 
why it cannot be self-supporting. It has grown 
too large. But if such ^ school were turned over 
to the Japanese government, all the powerful 
Christian influence would be lost. Think how these 
schools are ini demand, and how few there are of 
them. 

Each one of us however can be a helper toward 
the higher education of women, as Deaconess 
Knapp suggested, by answering the appeal which 
comes to us. 



NORWAY CHOOSES WOMAN FOR REPRE- 
SENTATIVE IN LEAGUE OF NATIONS 
ASSEMBLY. 



Norway is the first sovereign state to choose a 
woman as one of its three representatives to the 
assembly of. the League of Nations. This is ap- 
propriate as Norway was the first country to en- 
franchise its women. The woman who has been so 
honored is Betzy Kjelsberg. She is a factory in- 
spector and a distinguished member of the women's 
movement in Norway. 

The Assembly of the League of Nations is the 
governing body to which every state belonging to 
the League has the right to send their members, 
although the members have not more than one vote 
each. It is probable that the lead Norway has 
given in the matter of appointing women to this 
most representative body in the world will be 
followed by other countries.

THE ONLY DOLL IN THE VALLEY. 

By Robert Underwood Johnson. 
I. 
Up near the sources of Po 
Where the lakes reflect the snow 
And Italy touches heaven, 
There's a little girl of seven, 
A cava bella figlia, 
With the tinkling name of Ottilia: 
Hair like the blue-black night, 
And a brown, pomegranate skin, 
And a joy, to the sun akin, 
That war has failed to blight. 
She lives in a little alley 
Of stone, near the big casino, 
And against her gown of merino, 
Sewed up like the good Bambino, 
She carries a rare delight — 

The only doll in the valley. 
II. 
What matter the numberless cracks 
In its little noddle of wax, 
Or that one eye from its socket 
Lies in Ottilia's pocket? — 
That kisses have worn the paint 
Till the red of the lips is faint? 
For this is the children's saint 
And all the girls in Bezzecca 



Showing Velours, Riding Hats, 
Sport Hats, Tailored Hats, 
Dress Hats and Fur Hats. 
Also Fur Hats Made To Order.

Flock to Ottilia's alley 
As the Moslems flock to Mecca. 
And she with a heart of gold 
Lends them the doll to hold; 
And, of all the wistful eyes, 
Which speak of the greater lack- 
Hers who begs for the prize, 
Or hers who gives it back? 
Oh, yes, they have other needs, 
Those patient waifs of war — 
Victims of noble deeds

The warmth of your bed-time kisses, 
It will find no lack of others 
From Italy's little mothers.

There shall be some cheer through the winter

For the girls in every valley. 



"NEATH THE OAKS." 



Wellesley girls for, once were glad to be any- 
where but "neath the oaks of our dear old Welles- 
ley" on Thursday afternoon when the terrific wind 
storm blew down one of our "noble oaks" on 
Founders' Hill. The building of the new steps had 
evidently undermined the roots of the tree to such 
an extent that the wind toppled it over easily. The 
tremendous crash startled all the classes which 
were being held in Founders'. Fortunately no one 
was hurt and very little damage was done to the 
sidewalk. Deep regret, however, is felt for the 
passing of one of our "noble oaks."

HOW I SENT MY DAUGHTER TO 
WELLESLEY ON $68.63 A YEAR. 



By a father who loves his daughter and wishes for 
her the highest and noblest in the line of 
education. 



(Editor's Note.— We print this simple and heart- 
rending little story of the perseverence of one 
daughter and one father with the sole statement 
that what has been done can be done again). 
to whom it may not concern: — 

I am being forced bj" a driving conscience to set 
down my little experiment in the hope that it may 
aid others. When I read of fathers afraid to send 
their daughters to college on an allowance of one 
thousand, two thousand, or even a hundred dol- 
lars a year I think of my own experience and 
wonder at their stupidity— or is it selfishness? 

My income was coming in when Leola reached 
the pre-college age and her high school teachers 
assured me that she possessed all the ear-marks of 
a high-brow such as bone rimmed spectacles, no 
taste for clothes and a sagging skirt. I do not 
T)elieve in defying fate so I went up to Wellesley 
and explained to the Dean and the Superintendent 
of Grounds how exceptional Leola was. They were 
eager to handle her so I said to Leola, "If you have 
no false pride I can manage to send you to col- 
lege." Leola looked blank and said she did not 
know what false pride was, so all was well. 

I discovered that all Leola needed to enter 
classes was a white card which the cashier gave 
her. As I have always been sensitive about hav- 
ing people give Leola anything I just bought a 
plain card for her and thus eliminated both the 
feeling of dependence on the cashier and the feel- 
ing of depression in my bank-book. 

Of course I could not permit Leola to live 
among so many girls as lived in the freshman 
dormitories so I procured from a nice man the use 
of his garage for the winter. Leola was to sweep 
it and shine his wind-shield for him in return for 
the nice comfortable bed on the back seat of a 
Ford limousine. Thus I was saved the unnecessary 
expense of rooming for Leola. Her books caused 
-mie a momentary panic until I remembered that 
Leola had always had taking ways and we planned 



to have her study with some of the girls. I did 
allow her fifty cents for her pencils and tablets. 

Her board was quite a problem but I contrived 
with the tea-room lady to give Leola the left-over 
toast and lettuce at the small sum of fifteen cents 
a day. This amounted to forty-three dollars and 
twenty cents. Then Leola was dyspeptic and had 
to eat a certain number of medicated biscuits 
every month so that cost came to one dollar and 
eight cents a year. 

I set aside fifteen dollars for Leola's clothes. 
She managed to save three dollars and eight cents 
from this the first year because she wore an old 
coat of mine and her mother made her gymnasium 
suit out of an old blue serge suit of mine. Leola 
has never cared for clothes and being a very sensi- 
ble girl she was able to keep very clean and neat 
on eleven dollars and ninety-two cents. 

I allowed Leola twenty-five cents a month as 
spending money with the stipulation that she must 
spend ten cents on church and must save ten 
cents, thus allowing her five cents a month for 
festivity. 

Incidental expenses including laundry, dentist, 
and a Wellesley banner, came to nine dollars and 
sixty-three cents. 

At the end of her freshman year Leola's dys- 
pepsia was no worse and she had gained many 
valuable hints about hygiene and mathematics. 

Her second year, since she wanted to live on 
campus, I contracted to have her sleep in the ice- 
house along with a few cars and the Wellesley 
truck. She managed nicely. 

I think this proves conclusively that a man with 
the, right kind of daughter and the absence of 
false pride can secure a liberal education for any 
amount of children. 

An itemized account of Leola's expenses are 
given below: 

Cost of entrance card $ .05 

Tablets and pencils 50 

Food 43.20 

Medicated Biscuits 1.08 

Clothes $15.00— $3.08 11.92 

Spending money 2.25 

Incidental expenses 9.63 

Total $68.63 




WOMEN'S WORK AND WOMEN'S WAGES. 



The principle of equal pay has recently been ac- 
cepted in the Danish Rigsdag. It sounds like a 
fairy tale but it is true nevertheless that this 
legislative body has unanimously fixed the same 
pay for men and women in the same position. An 
enormous moral and economic burden is thus 
taken off women's shoulders in far away Denmark. 

A writer commenting on the action says: "Our 
hope is that the victor}- will prove a blessing to 
men and women and the work for the State's ser- 
vice, which they will carry on as fellow-workers 
on an equal footing."

SUNDAY MORNING CHAPEL. 



The speaker at Houghton Memorial Chapel on 
Sunday morning, Nov. 8, was Dr. Douglas Adam, 
of Hartford, Connecticut. Choosing as his text 
"Ye are the light of the World." Dr. Adam 
spoke of the opportunity which Christians have to- 
day to contribute to a disillusioned world, the 
light gained by the Christian experience. The 
world to-day needs a soul for the social fabric 
which will necessitate new valuations. It is these 
valuations which the followers of Christ should 
show it; first, in the secret of a satisfied life com- 
ing from seeking the spiritual rather than mate- 
rial; secondly in the ideal of success not as per- 
sonal gain, but as giving, as Jesus did; thirdly in 
the ideal of democracy in which both rights and 
obligations have a part but in which obligations 
should be stressed; and lastly in a realization of 
a great world fellowship, a united world. 

In these four ways, the church of to-day may 
give light to the world, and Dr. Adam ended 
with an exhortation to the church to seize this 
great opportunity and laying aside divisions, work 
unitedly on the social problems of to-day. 



The first of the Saturday night dances began 
on the evening of November 8. Beebe and Wash- 
ington were open. Professional music is engaged 
this year and a charge of twenty-five cents for 
each couple is made to cover this expense. There 
is a new system whereby each girl signs up as 
she enters and pays the fee later. 



IN CONSTANTINOPLE DURING THE WAR. 



Soon we are to have the opportunity of hearing 
a vivid account of how during the war Germany 
worked against righteousness in Turkey. Mr. 
Luther Fowle, the Executive Secretary of Robert 
College in Constantinople, distributed millions of 
relief money, outwitting the Turkish authorities, 
and the German spy that was almost constantly 
at his heels. We may hear about his experiences, 
and learn what America's opportunities in Turkey 
are at vespers on Sunday evening, the sixteenth.

REPORT OF WESTERY MAINE 
WELLESLEY CLUB. 



The fall meeting of Westery Maine Wellesley 
Club was held at the De Witt House, Lewiston, 
on November 11. After a delicious Luncheon 
served at the hotel for which the club was enter- 
tained by the local members, Mrs. Ray N. Ran- 
dall, Mrs Arthur G. Staples and Miss Anna L. 
Dingley, the club was taken in automobiles to the 
home of Miss Dingley and Mrs. Staples for the 
business and social meeting and afternoon tea. 
The meeting was made particularly interesting by 
Miss Elizabeth Bass's account of her experiences 
overseas. Further business centered around 
newly awakened interest in the Students' Aid. 
Among those in attendance besides the hostesses 
and Miss Bass, were Mrs. Charles C. Harmon, 
president, Mrs. A. H. Bodwell, Dr. Charlotte 
Hammond, Mrs. George Campbell, Miss Helen 
Brae, Mrs. Hattie Brazier Libby, Miss Alice Lord, 



Mrs. Fred Lord, Miss Laura A. Hatch, Miss 
Jessica Haskell, Miss May Potter, Miss Lois 
Kugler, Mrs. Gladys Dotry Chapman, Mrs Henry 
Johnson, Mrs. Margelia Thomas Smith. 

Under the auspices of the Westery Maine Wel- 
lesley Club, Coningsby Dawson, Lieut. C. F. A., 
lectured in Portland, Maine, on October 17 at the 
new High School Auditorium. His subject was 
the "Remaking of the World," upon which he 
spoke in his usual inspiring manner to a select 
and most appreciative audience. From this lec- 
ture the club raised five hundred dollars to send 
to the Wellesley War Service Committee for the 
Units overseas. 

Besides the efforts for the Units, the club is 
enthusiastic in its work for the Students' Aid 
Society. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mable Wood Little, '99, 

Cor. Sec. and Treas.

Mi. Holyoke. 

The college has been celebrating "good speech 
week." Each student fines herself a cent for every 
slang phrase or grammatical error she uses. The 
money collected is to be given to the endowment 
fund. 

Bryn Maw's newest class room is the Interna- 
tional Conference of Working Women, being held 
at Washington, D. C. Professor Anna Bezanson 
and Professor Susan Kingsbury have taken their 
classes of graduate students in social economy 
and research to Washington, where the students 
in atending the conference are obtaining first- 
hand information in the subjects in which they are 
specializing. 

Lantern Night, the event second only to Com- 
mencement at Bryn Mawr, at which the Sopho- 
mores give the Freshmen lanterns "to light them 
through college," was observed Friday evening, 
October 31. 

The Radcliffe Scholarship list, which this year 
includes the names of many girls from greater 
Boston, was made public last week. 

Armistice Day, November 11, will be observed 
as a holiday by Clark College. 

When the Roosevelt Memorial Drive at Harvard 
came to a close Saturday the reports which were 
not absolutely completa showed a collection by the 
three teams of $2007. As only one gift was over 
ten dollars and the majority varied from one to 
five dollars, this sum represents the interest of a 
great per centage of Harvard students in the 
Roosevelt Memorial. 



THE 
WELLESLEY NATIONAL BANK 

WELLESLEY, MASS. 

The faculty and students of Wellesley College are in- 
vited to avail themselves of the privileges and services 
offered by this Bank, and the officers and employees are

Professors at Yale now sit not only on the 
faculty of their own schools but are grouped into 
university divisions which are represented on the 
new University Council, proposed last march, and 
finally organized with Dr. Brown as chairman. 
Formerly a group of separate schools, Yale is now 
an organized unit, and under the supervision of 
this new council with recognized responsibility a 
legislative power over the entire university and 
great progress is expected. 

ROOSEVELT HOUSE. 

The house in which Theodore Roosevelt was born, 
No. 28 E. 20th St., New York, is to be restored 
so .as to appear as nearly as possible as it did in 
Col. Roosevelt's boyhood and as he describes it in 
a very readable chapter of his autobiography. 
The adjoining house will also be acquired and the 
two maintained by the women of America as a 
center for teaching his ideals of American citizen- 
ship. The chairman of the committee, Mrs. John 
Henry Hammond of New York, will be in Wel- 
lesley next Thursday, Nov. 20th and will speak at 
the Zeta Alpha House at 8 p. m. on the person- 
ality of the great American. All interested are 
urged to come and meet Mrs. Hammond.
